DFTR

So I was lost down that rabbit hole at is TV Tropes the other day and stumbled across Don’t Fear the Reaper (The Trope). Which of course is named by Blue Oyster Cult’s 1976 hit, “Don’t Fear the Reaper” from their album Agents of Fortune.

The trope deals with the idea that death isn’t always to be feared.

Mercedes Colomar: You’re not the nurse?
Manny Calavera: No.
Mercedes Colomar: You’re not here to give me my medication?
Manny Calavera: No. But I am here to ease your pain.

DFTR seems to be joining RIP, at least in some circles.
